Free Documentary Film Screening of Paper Tigers

Tue Apr 25 2017, 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

The Parenting Place and the Missoula Public Library present a free screening of Documentary Film, Paper Tigers. This film will be shown at from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday April 25th in the library conference room. This will be the second of two screenings of 'Paper Tigers' in lieu of April's Child Abuse Prevention Month.

'Paper Tigers' chronicles a year in the life of Lincoln High School in the community of Walla Walla, Washington. The kids who come to Lincoln have a history of truancy, behavioral problems and substance abuse. After Lincoln's principal is exposed to research about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), he decides to radically change the school's approach to discipline. With the aid of diary camera footage, the film follows six students. From getting into fights, grappling with traumatic events in their lives, and on the cusp of dropping out, they find healing, support and academic promise at Lincoln High.
